Second Annual WAMSU Showcase

Our Second Annual Writing Across MSU Showcase will be online! Please watch for more information.

The Writing Across MSU Showcase brings together diverse faculty to share and celebrate the work of this year's Writing Center faculty partners. Writing Center faculty partners, including recipients of the FY20 Integrating Writing into STEM Grant awards made possible by a generous donation from Ann Jackson and Ken Wilson, will share assignments and rubrics, detail the student supports they put in place, and examine the successes and challenges through samples of student work.

Over the past year, we have studied the teaching of writing across disciplines, discussed our common and divergent purposes for writing, shared experiences about integrating writing into our currivula, and partnered together to develop what we believe are meaningful writing experiences. Bringing expertise from Chemical, Industrial, and Environmental Engineering, as well as History, Microbiology, Statistics, Animal and Range Sciences, presenters will describe their motivations in seeking partnership with the Writing Center, their goals for integrating writing into their courses, and their processes for doing so.

The showcase will give you an opportunity to learn more about how you might partner with the Writing Center to integrate writing into your curricula through next year's Integrating Writing into STEM and Integrating Writing Across MSU grant programs.

Please direct questions to Michelle Miley at michelle.miley@montana.edu or Aaron Yost at aaron.yost@montana.edu.

Spring Focus Fridays

Focus Friday Image

The Writing Center offers Focus Friday three times a semester to support graduate student writers. This is an open writing time in Wilson Hall 1-115A (right next door to the Writing Center) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with our GTA tutors on hand to provide one-on-one writing help. No r.s.v.p. needed—grad students should just bring whatever writing they'd like to work on and we'll provide the bagels and coffee!

We have two remaining Focus Fridays on March 13 and April 17. If you have any questions about this program, please contact our Graduate Program Coordinator, Erin Strickland, at (406) 994-5314 or by email at erin.strickland@montana.edu.
